A track packed with big hooks big chorus and plenty of riff and still has plenty of energy to the feel of the track, truly a stunning track one to crank up and scream that chorus out and head bang to the stunning riff.

Next up Blacktoothed and their track Pulse taken from their upcoming album Juli out July 29 2022

Blacktoothed online


I will be honest with you I was not going to review this track from Blacktoothed as initially It did not grip me, but as Pulse went on, I found myself finding the hidden gems of the track from the melodies to the hooks to raw power of the track met with some stunning production.

This one is defiantly a grower and may take a listen or two.



Next up are ThornHill and their track Hollywood taken from their upcoming album heroine out June 3 2022

I love Hollywood as I can hear cues from Deftones, it has this atmospheric feel, and with thick bass lines and groves.

A soaring chorus with big soundscapes, this is the perfect track to kick and back and just relax I love it.

A really nice upbeat track with a cool 70/80’s classic rock tones, this will be one for you if you love bands like Blackstone cherry, BlackBerry smoke, AC/DC.


As I’ve already mentioned it’s an upbeat track matched with a great set of vocals, packed with hooks in the chorus, a track to really tap your foot too some nice keys on the track too If you like a bit of piano, Go and check this one out

lastly this week are appeal to authority and their stunning single Black Aura



check out the video for Black Aura here


I really love cues this band take from bands like Tool and I felt like I was picking up a little bit of a system of a down vibe with the start to the track that may just be me.


I love how this track goes from strength to strength there are different layers being added weather that be more guitars or different vocals styles. Black Aura is not afraid to take different twists and turns whilst still delivering a track at 8.09 with plenty of grove some impressive guitar tones. Can’t wait to hear what’s next from these guys
